Whenever love stories are mentioned in the Hindi film industry, there is definitely the talk of the love story of Waheeda Rehman and Guru Dutt. Guru Dutt was married when he met Waheeda Rehman. He had a love marriage with Geeta Dutt but when he was making the film Pyaasa, he got attracted to the film actress Waheeda Rehman. Once there was a rumor that Guru Dutt had married Waheeda Rehman by becoming a Muslim.
Geeta Dutt was very upset with their relationship and once said that ever since she (Waheeda Rehman) has come, our life has become hell. This was mentioned by Yasir Usman, who wrote a book on Guru Dutt, on a show in Lallantop. Yasir has written a book based on the life of Guru Dutt, Guru Dutt: An Unfinished Story.
Yasir Usman had told, ‘Johnny Walker used to say that the more distance you keep between the studio and the house, the happier you will be, otherwise, the talk of the house will be in the studio and the talk of the studio will be in the house. This probably started happening with Guru Dutt. The relationship with Geeta Dutt and the conversations that were going on with Waheeda Ji was going on in the minds of both Guru Dutt and Geeta Dutt.
He had further told, ‘Geeta Dutt had told Vimal Mitra Sahab that since she came into our life, our life has become hell.’ Satya Saran, in his book ‘A Decade with Guru Dutt’, quoted Guru Dutt’s friend Abrar Alvi as saying that Geeta Dutt was the reason behind Waheeda Rehman’s coming between Geeta Dutt and Guru Dutt and the relationship was broken. Because of Dutt.
He writes in his book that when Geeta Dutt came to know about the so-called marriage of Guru Dutt and Waheeda Rehman, she was in London. On returning, instead of going home, she went straight to Kashmir. In the meantime, when Guru Dutt came to know that Geeta was living with a Pakistani man, he was badly broken. He also started making distance with Waheeda Rehman. But then after some time Guru Dutt and Geeta Dutt separated.
